Currently I' working on a form that deals with address, is it worth my time looking for an api that allows users to look up an address or should I force the to do it manually? If so what api would you recommend?
Depends on what you want the address for. Do you plan to mail something? Or charge a credit card? If so, I wouldn't bother with the API. Just make sure you validate the input. If you need to geolocate them for some reason then yes do use an API. Google Maps comes to mind.
I'm planning on using geolocation, thanks.
On a side note are you still interested in world war stuff?
I just finished Ludendorff's memoirs last night.
sneakyimp I have a bunch of old world war two letters ect. they'd be of more value you to you than me I think
cluelessPHP I appreciate you thinking of me, but I am not the sorting-through-family-letters type. You might consider sending them to the Imperial War Museum or the WW2 Museum in New Orleans.
